There are a lot of things that can get on my nerves in my daily life. Things that I sometimes struggle with or don’t handle so well.
Things like –
Why can I get out of the car in 6 seconds and it takes my daughter 6 minutes?
Why does she feel the need to take off her coat and shoes every time we get in the car?
Why does she wait until we are the furthest away from a bathroom in a store to tell me that she is about to pee in her pants NOW?
Why does my son have to challenge every little thing that I ask him to do?
Why does “go get dressed for school” sound like “go play with toys, or keep watching cartoons, or whatever else you feel like doing” to him?
Why does he repeatedly come up behind me and scare me when he knows he will get a very negative reaction?
However – I am going to focus on the good stuff instead. I am so thankful that –
I have two great kids who are healthy and happy (most of the time).
My black mood has been receding and I have lightened up considerably at home. This, by the way, helps a lot with my relationship with Brad.
Brad and I are doing pretty well.
I can honestly say that I am pretty happy right now.
I have great friends, in real life and online.
I am almost completely ready for Christmas. Almost. Shopping is fun. Christmas is a great excuse to do a lot of it, but I will be happy to be done.
Someone in my family is going to have a baby soon. I can’t wait to meet him.
I made something amazing for my Grandpa this year, I know he is going to love it.
Dried mangos. I get dried mangos from our local Trader Joe’s. They have nothing added to them at all. I have a serious addiction… they are so yummy. I am very thankful that they exist.
I could go on but I won’t bore you. I hope you are having an enjoyable holiday season as well.
